My sister in law is having her baby shower at the end of this month and I was really wanting to make something crafty for her baby girl's room. I was walking around Hobby Lobby looking for inspiration when I saw one of their little fliers with a recommended craft using stackable wooden crosses. I grabbed the flier and got everything I needed to get started. :)
I bought two different sized crosses, a sheet of scrapbook paper (zebra), turquoise acrylic paint, and jeweled peel-off stickers. I already had mod-podge, black and white acrylic paint, and paint brushes at home so I didn't need to get them.
My sister in law isn't the biggest fan of pink so her baby's room will be done mostly in turquoise and zebra print with a little bit of pink accent, which is why I choose these colors. You could really do anything you want. The flier I grabbed used everything from paint, to mosaics, to silver-leafing. This craft was so easy, inexpensive and quick. You can't go wrong. :) I painted the crosses first (the turquoise and I painted both of the sides of the crosses black), then after they were dry, I mod-podged the zebra paper down (I painted the mod podge on both sides of the paper and pressed down to help seal it and release any air bubbles) and finally laid the jeweled stickers on top. After pressing the jewels down onto the zebra print cross, I cut pieces off that were hanging over and pressed them down onto the turquoise cross. I am waiting for my husband to nail them together (there is an insert in the back to connect them). I can't wait to give this to my sister in law and I know she will love it! :)
Thanks for stopping by and seeing my first post. Check back for more creativity soon!
